Known for their resounding rock grandeur merging nostalgic indie-pop textures, Perth indie outfit Big Orange are holding nothing back in their newest single “Love’s Not Enough” (out March 25th).
Backing up the release of the highly-praised alt-rock single “By The Dozen” earlier in the year, the four-piece band, led by Daniel Davis, are continuing to explore their current affinity for 90’s Britpop elements found within big-sounding rock ravines.
Today Glide is excited to premiere the new single, which gets straight to the point, as a rapid trance of recurrent electric guitar riffs and an addictively relentless beat dominates the senses. Hitting you right out of the gate with an up-tempo beat and infectious synths and vocals, the song resonates with an echoing intensity that peaks in the chorus alongside synthesised specks of nostalgic indie-pop in the form of flying synths and running percussion. Bringing to mind the indie pop and rock of the early aughts, the song balances earworm goodness with effortless cool, with just the right mix of guitar shredding, danceable beats, and unexpected time changes. Reflecting on an ended relationship, Davis brings his distinctive lyrical maturity, reaching insightful conclusions that can hopefully provide some closure, as he states:
“As the title suggests, the song is about the fact that sometimes even the forces of love aren’t strong enough to hold two together.”
